'Fortnite' will force PS4 and Xbox One players to fight each other

Fortnite 2.08 update patch notes

According to the latest patch notes from Epic Games, the PS4 and Xbox One pools have been combined for crossplay matchmaking.

In addition, Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms will have their pools combined. As with all significant updates, this patch does require downtime, which usually takes around one or two hours.

Recently, the developer announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite would feature cross-play between all platforms, even Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, which feature 60 frames per second (FPS) modes. Meanwhile, Save the World players got a returning Staredown Southie hero and more Beta Storms, and Creative players received new exotic island locations and new game rule options.

Sixers will have Joel Embiid back Sunday vs. Pacers
This gives them the tiebreaker if they finish with the same record as the Pacers (42-25) at the end of the regular season. Bojan Bogdanovic (18 points) and Darren Collison (14 points) stood out for the losing squad.

The Baller can be found at some Expedition Outposts in Fortnite Season 8. Players are able to use the attached Grappler and Boost functionality to pull themselves up cliffs or swing through trees. The orb completely encases us so we can't be shot while driving, though the vehicle only has 300 health and is a large target.

Keep in mind that this move doesn't eliminate cross-play parties from the equation. Vending machines now dispense one item for free, but will disappear thereafter. Vending machines also now won't offer Common or Uncommon items, only rare or above.

Any Fortnite: Battle Royale players who are now seeking a victory royale on Nintendo Switch will be very interested in some changes coming to the platform after the recent 8.10 update. This gives players on the powerful hardware an advantage because not only are the controls much more responsive, but the added frames increase precision.
